Primary Postcards Exhibition 2012

This year Lismore Castle Arts invited enthusiastic Primary School students to take part in Primary Postcards 2012. The programme was designed with the intention of encouraging artistic talent and a passion for the visual arts within younger generations.

Participants were invited to visit Lismore Castle Arts for a preview of the vibrant “Artifice 2012” exhibition featuring works from Transition Year students from across County Waterford. From here the children enjoyed a series of artists’ presentations, workshops and school visits from LCA’s education team. The result of this project accumulated in the realisation of 200 personalized postcards inspired by what they had seen and learnt.

On 20th October, 90 finalists have been selected to showcase their works in Lismore Castle Arts as part of the Finalist Awards Night. Music, media and much more are to be expected between 5-6pm and all are invited to join. The exhibition will be opened by Margaret Organ, Arts Officer Waterford County Council. Congratulations once again to all the talented finalists.

The artists exhibiting in this year’s show represent Glenbeg National School (Dungarvan), Scoil Gharbháin (Dungarvan), Scoil Naomh Seosamh (Dungarvan), Villierstown National School (Cappoquin), Scoil Náisiúnta Naomh Caitriona (Conna), Liosmore Mochuda (Lismore).
